The shadow of your greatest gift.

Hello Earth Angels

As you know we come in with gifts, talents and attributes. Melody has been reviewing hers recently as she has made some changes in her lifestyle and there are still more to come.

Her greatest gift is her creativity and this life time she has explored many ways to express this creativity. She has been a professional singer, author, speaker, teacher and radio host to mention but a few. She is gifted with an unquenchable thirst to learn new things and practise them to a level of mastery that most people cannot be bothered with. She has been motivated to do this because she has needed to use her talent. Her talent is two-fold – to translate complex ideas and to facilitate understanding in others of things that are often complicated. This is the role of the teacher – firstly to learn oneself and then to pass on the learning to others. She has been a teacher of the creative arts, english as a second language, spiritual and creative journeys, self-development and how to live life more fully in terms of relationships, career choices and using your intuition.

To expand and utilise your gifts requires you to work

with the shadow of those gifts.

We would like to explain this in more detail.

Your shadow is not something to fear. Your shadow attributes are the fuel that gives light to what you have come here to express. Your pain and suffering propel you to move away from pain and suffering and choose joy and love but at another level it is the fuel that provides the energy for you to be propelled into the expression of your light. Therefore you can never be separate from it and you can never be better off without it.

You NEED the shadow and you need to become more efficient in transforming

its power to catapult you into new worlds.

As you can see there is subtly in this understanding. Remember Life is always abundant and efficient – there is never waste.

So let’s look at Melody’s ‘shadow aspects’ that help here express her gifts and talents.

Her gift is her creativity – her gift shadow is her amazing ability to come through difficulty.

Melody keeps putting herself in difficult situations so that she can express more of her creativity because difficult situations enable her to transform herself and re-create who she is. This is one of the reasons her professional career is so diverse.Each time she has transformed her difficult situation she has created something new and marvellous. Mostly the new and marvellous is a new understanding of herself and others that she is then able to utilise to teach others.

Her talent is to teach others and the specific teaching she has come to share is the process of transformation. To enable her to master her talent she has had to take many risks and put herself in many kinds of danger. By this we do not mean extreme sports, but she has if you like played extreme sports with her spiritual, emotional and mental health in order to understand experientially the capacity of human beings to re-invent themselves from trauma and abuse. Now of course she did not necessarily do all of this from a conscious viewpoint. It is the subconscious that carries many of these negative programs. But through negativity Melody has transformed more of her shadow into light and as the light has increased the understanding of her actions has happened as well.

It has resulted in Melody having a strong desire for peace, stillness and acceptance of herself and her world … and these are good desires to have.

For many years Melody did not understand her shadow and why she continually created places in her life for transformation, but a teacher of the transformational process needs to understand how transformation happens, break it down into teachable chunks and perfect the teaching so that others learn from the teacher’s learning.

Time and due diligence is required to gain expertise because as you continue to develop your skills you gain in mastery. Mastery enables you to enjoy the process, to do things with grace and ease and a deep sense of pleasure. 

Mastery transforms the shadow by accepting its place in your lives.

It is the expression of your individual purpose.

So while others may have a more stable life than Melody it will be because their gifts, talents attributes and shadows are different.

As soon as you become more interested in other people’s lives and compare yourselves with others the more ‘off track’ from your own life and reason to be here you become  – creating deep pain within. This wound will not be healed until you accept your journey first and focus on you. The pain does not disappear but your way of handling it means you do not ‘stay in the pain’. You recognise it, accept it and allow it to go back into the sea of your consciousness, blessed with healing and compassion. This is an element of being in the flow. Acceptance of self.Only from a place of acceptance can you take the right action to resolve it.

Getting back to Melody’s dilemma. Her risk-taking and ability to come back from difficulty. Melody is learning that the nuance of degree is the issue here.

Her risk-taking is necessary to her path, so she cannot deny this element of her being, however she does not need to be in a place of extreme risk-taking. She only needs to understand when and how much risk-taking she is needing in any given moment. By qualifying the amount of risk at each point of her life she can find ways to take the risk and understand the transformation without putting herself into a fight or flee circumstance every single time. Not all points of transformation need extreme conditions to be understood.

We hope this has been helpful.

The deepest question..

Hello Earth Angels

Here are some words the angels asked me to share with you……..

 

In the roots of my being lives the oldest woman – knarled and withered, corpulent and wrinkled, she is timeless and eternal. Some would call her Crone. But this is not truly her – for she is before crone she’s as old as Earth herself. All goddesses sprout from her being she is patient, unconditional love.

Wisdom is her gift and knowing her reason.All of earth are born from her and all must return.

She and I sit and nameless, wordless, energies pass between us. Her eyes dark sparkling jets in her wrinkled overly round face. She misses nothing, judges naught and knows all. She is content I have come to spend time with her. As though from deep within herself, she brings forth a voice to speak…

 

“So daughter of my spleen, you finally visit me.”

I nod mutely.

“You seek what life has not divulged to you. You seek truth. You seek answers. You have searched the globe in time and space and now come to within. All must come to within, beloved daughter. Nowhere else does the answer you seek, sit. I see you have let go of all the tools you found on your path that you thought would help you. You have let go enthusiasm, persistence, focus, intention” she paused.

“You have even let go love, the hardest for you I know and now you are here. And here is where you give up your all. You give up knowing and wisdom – you surrender all of you that is prostrate, supplicant, all aspects of ego, laid aside. Beauty, kindness, caring for others and for self – these too are put aside.

 

To discover what, you ask?

 

Consciousness?  God?  The penultimate?

 

No beloved, even these must be put away here. Your journey is not complete. Yet you come to here because there is no other road you can take. This is where you meet yourself.

 

The mirror is a smokescreen – you exist yet you exist not!

In each moment you may express from your being whatever your wish or whatever feels to emanate from you. It is not yours and you are not it, you are the vessel, the carrier, the empty conduit.

Everything you think, feel, see and sense that comes through you

is IT flowing through you. What is IT?

It is life beloved.

Accept this as your knowing and be in peace. You will know no more than this. You will experience no more than this.”

“I understand this!” I cry in frustration. “But how does life have value anymore? How do I interact with it? How do I enjoy it?”

 

“Life IS IT, beloved daughter. Life plays through you and takes you on a journey. You thought it was Love, but you have had to let go of love and your perfected ideals of what love is and all you are  left with is Life.

 Life is IT!

You are moved on the pathway that already is. You are moved through life because LIFE is and IT lives through you. You will be gone in this form when you breathe your last breath.

To engage in life allow yourself to accept all that life offers you. Don’t fight life. Enjoy ALL experiences, do not label them or judge them – whatever the experiences, good, bad, indifferent or boring. Live your life from your deepest root. When you do this all that happens to you. Before you and through you can be viewed as a moving picture, an entertainment for you to experience.

Feel blessed by this and truly fulfilled by it.

Allow yourself to enjoy life and you will see it then as the miracle it is. 

Life is the miracle.

 Everything you see, want or think you desire is an expression of that miracle. When you understand the miracle there is only being –ness and peace will follow. Life will play through you and create tasks and experiences for you to take part in. Do them with as much joy and happiness as you can muster. Give thanks for the tasks.

Be in gratitude that Life still ‘sees fit’ to come through you in this form. Then you will have found what you seek.”

 She rested her chin on her ample chest and closed her eyes, as though the effort to speak with me had worn her out. But of course this was not true. It was the ‘IT” that had come through her to speak with me.

It was Life. It is Life. Life is IT.

 

I rose from the root of my being and began my day.  Life coming through me. This is why we are human be-ings – when we be we allow IT (life) to come through us.

 

 

I am life.

Life is me.

Life is IT.

Feelings and thoughts

Calmed into a

Deep sea of

Stillness

Settled on the inside

Still on the outside

Life.

The Angels’ First Aid Course to Handling Challenging Times

Hello Earth Angels

On this week’s show the Angels offered their First Aid Course to use when handling challenging times – and there is no doubt we are going through those now! So I have included them here for you to use.

Here are the steps to take when you are feeling as though you are spiralling out of control in panic, fear and anxiety.

1) Take some flower essences to help you connect back in to yourself – because emotions like panic, fear, and anxiety disconnect us from ourselves and make us frenetic and mad. They stop us from making heart-soul choices. These emotions keep us in our heads and away from the emotions we so desperately wish to feel, safe, secure and loved.

Flower essences give you a space to breathe and breathing deeply is the key to being in touch with your full and true self.

2)  Let go – let go of all you are feeling, let it wash away from you until you can feel some peace coming within. Surrender to this moment of now – let now be all there is – for in truth now is the only time you have and all your emotions of fear, anxiety and panic are about trying to rush from here, rush from the place you are.

3) Allow yourself to be ready for the next step – the next step is to breathe!

4) Breathe – deep and reconnect. To those of you who are new to my show this is the technique I suggest: place your first finger on your belly button and breathe into where your little finger rests do this until you breathe slows down and then imagine breathing at your knees and feet. In this deeply connected breath we can find clarity.

5) Keep breathing until you feel the regular breaths of deep calm and then in this space and in your heart, ask your question. Make sure that the question you ask is simply this –

What do I need to do next to move forward into more peace, happiness, joyousness and love?

Now in case you are wondering how is this relevant to my issues about my health, my job, my home , my relationship I need to remind you that the power of this question is simply profound because all of the other things I mentioned like job, relationship etc are the outward catalysts for the thing you are really after – and that is the feeling of peace, happiness, joyful-ness or love that you think these things will give to you. For eg – when I have the best relationship I will have love, the best job then I will feel joyful etc

But this is a fallacy. These things do not give you what you want – the feelings you want are states of being – they are present within you regardless of what you have, you own or how you see yourself in terms of accolades and success measures.

This is the biggest change we have to remember about ourselves and the more we fight it, the more difficult our outward situation becomes.

We are not our creations…we are above and beyond that. This is the old paradigm.

The real paradigm (not the new one but the one we must return to) is that firstly before all things we are: LOVE and when we allow love to be the truth of our being and we consciously engage with that truth we can feel safe, secure and loved because we are not alone, nor rejected nor judged. We are in fact surrounded totally by the spiritual energies of unconditional love and companionship.

Our first judgement is an illusion, we have never been judged or rejected by the Source, the Cosmic Consciousness or God – we have done that to ourselves because we could not believe we were love and yet that is what we are. We are always in love, we are always in the vortex – it is our own blinkers of self judgement and self rejection that stop us from believing what is true.

Melody speaks: I use this First Aid Course every day to maintain balance during stressful times – I recommend this unreservedly.

Winner # 37 – Angels’ Guidance

Earth Angels

Here is the 37th question the Angels have answered in the promotion for July (that yes we are still answering in August!! (BIG SMILES)

Adam asks:

I enjoyed hearing you on Law of Attraction talk radio and I appreciate that you are doing this kind promotion.I have been told that I am intuitive/psychic (guess we all are) and I am working on developing that skill.  I tried to connect with my soul and heard the message “the house will sell” which put me at ease but then I started to wonder whether that was my mind saying that.

My question is there anything I can do to speed up the sale of the condo for the good of all concerned.  We have lowered the price and been told it is priced right.  We also had the energy cleared.  The condo shows well and everyone that comes to see it falls in love but we have not yet had any offers.  My wife is expecting in November so this would be an ideal (according to my mind) time to move and there are several houses we have seen that we would like to buy.  Notwithstanding this I try not to be to attached to the result so I don’t think it away.Thank you very much in advance. Adam

The Angels reply:

Dear one, Thank you for the opportunity to clarify a couple of things as well as answer your question.

We would like to begin with the issue of psychic skills and also self-doubt.

Every Earth Angel has psychic skills – these skills are in fact the tools we use to communicate and as every human being is an earth angel and has at least 1 angel guardian or companion therefore every earth angel has the capacity to utilise psychic gifts. Sometimes there is much conditioning and fear that blocks the use of these skills and as a result some Earth Angels only find they can connect after a major initiation through a time of extreme transformation, such as a death of someone close or an illness. Your resistance to developing these skills (and they can be used and developed in the same way muscles can if you are an athlete) is blocked by your self-doubt. Self-doubt is the product of the mind that most often processes things to be true by putting it through the following process:

According to the mind something is true when

  • I can see it
  • it is acceptable to the community at large i.e. mass consciousness accepts it as so
  • it does not harm my inalienable right to ‘be right’
  • it can be judged, dissected and seen to be what the mind says it is

You can see that this process would have some trouble with psychic skills and that is because they are the language skills of the heart and soul, not the mind and therefore from the minds perspective are to be treated with the utmost suspicion!(BIG SMILES HERE!!)

So looking at your question we can see that you have been listening to our messages for you on this topic – but we would like to illustrate more fully here.

Here are a few suggetions to keep the energy moving:

1) start packing all the things you will not need in the next few months.

2) start preparing for the birth of your child.

3) By the way, you have not consulted with your child as to when is the best time to move – do so and see what answers you get – you will find they are different to what you expect!

Enjoy where you are in the world right now…being ‘garden tenderers’ for the next great birthing in your lives. Enjoy being together. Let things take their course. A new soul entering the Earth space is a matter of great celebration in spirit and on earth, take the time to be fully present with this not simply rushing to have everything follow your plan. The most important ingredients are the souls in this birth, not the house. You have not yet seen your new home. While there may be a few that are in your price range, the one that will support all of you and allow you to grow in love and happiness has not yet presented itself to you… and until then you will have to wait.

Your child’s first steps will be in your new home. Be filled with gratitude at all that is and is to become. Blessings, beloved.

Winner # 36 – Angels’ Guidance

Hello Earth Angels

Here is the 36th question the Angels have answered as part of our promotion in July (and yes we do realise it is August – just clearing the last of the questions for that month!)

Shalin asks:

First THANK YOU and Angels for this opportunity.   I have two desires…the deepest burning desire is Baptism in Holy Spirit, Remembrance, Connection at this level I am at.  I have been studying, trying,  praying , searching, begging for this   20  plus years  after miracle experience introduced me to A Course In Miracles.   Melody please ask Angels to tell me what am I doing incorrectly that I do not experience connection,  peace , joy, more than everything as promised in ACIM , Bible and many other revelations I’ve searched through. 
I am OVER 75 years old  and want this connection so deeply makes me cry writing this.  My Heart/MIND  aches for completion.  I want  to live it, radiate it to all not just talk it. Thank you again…. I am very grateful. Most especially Love , Shalin

The Angels reply:

Beloved one, we know your desire is the truth of your being. It has taken you many years to live and try all things to bring you to this point and we wish to say this.

If there is anything that is keeping you from this connection it is the desire for it and the belief that you must do something to attain it.

Hear these words in the depth of your being:

You are always and forever connected to Source, to God and

in the presence of the Holy Spirit.

You are regardless of what you believe or how you have judged yourself – LOVE.

You are never separate, you already are all that you desire and more.

When you accept – this is actually who you are – your experience of this revelation will be profound – but it may not be as you expect. Let go of all your expectations as to how this will feel and be in your life. Often enlightenment comes not with the big bang but the sly and gentle whisper that will not let your being go! Always with our blessings beloved.
